Question surround sound receiver wattage

I just bought a philips DFR 1500 surround sound receiver and it appears to have a stereo option (which is why I bought it) and I cannot find the wattage ANYWHERE! does anyone know or know the wattage of a similar one?

i'm not sure that this topic is in the correct place but oh well.

More BASS!

I can't recall ever seeing a philips receiver that was sold as a separate, always been as a centerpiece to a HTIB system with little satellite speakers and a powered sub. I assume the unit you have is a receiver with integrated DVD player or something of that nature?

Assuming you did find some manufacture claimed wattage ratings, you could probably assume that they would not be accurate.

I'd guess it's probably good for somewhere around 1W per channel.

According to this used ad in another language, it's 70 wpc. However, as mdocod states, I'd take that with a grain of salt. On the other hand, I would have guessed a bit more than 1 watt though. Yes, it's from a home-theater-in-a-box system.

Crank it up on something clean with good dynamic range. Is it loud enough?

It may give you up to 70 wpc in stereo but that won't happen with all channels running. By my reckoning that's 350 watts and looking at the back it only draws 216 watts if my eyes aren't fooling me.
